Rank #1: Episode 53: Beth McCord + the Enneagram

Podcast cover
Read more

If there is one tool that has helped me grow and flourish and better understand my friends as well as myself, it is the enneagram. I talk about it a lot on here (as you know), so today I invited my friend Beth McCord, an amazing enneagram coach, to come and lay out the basics for us of why we should learn about the enneagram, how to sort out your type, and a very short description of each number. 

This is your enneagram primer. :) More to come in future episodes!

(Beth has a ton of amazing enneagram resources on her website- be sure to check it out!)

Podcast cover
Read more

I'm still not totally sure how to put words around this conversation. It was just so so good. And fun (of course). Comedian John Crist and I, as you will hear, have been sharing event posters for years, but this is our first opportunity to be friends. But when you guys request a guest OVER AND OVER, I do my best to get them on the show!

I knew John would be funny, we all knew he'd be funny, but I had no idea how profound and honest and kind he would be. What a good dude... he may be restoring my faith in male enneagram 3s. :) If you weren't a fan of John before, you will be now. Make sure you follow him on social media, head to his shows when he's in your town, and buy up all his swag. :)

Y'all just buckle up. Lauren Daigle is here with stories and preaching and heart and SINGING and she is kinder to us than we deserve. Her writing and her music have changed so many of our lives, today's in depth convo behind the words and music will do the same, I think. Her latest album Look Up Child is an absolute smash and she's headed out on a world tour, playing in some of the coolest arenas and venues.

Make sure you check out her new video for Rescue! It's unreal.

And if you get a chance today, maybe remind Lauren via social media how much her music, her life, and this conversation meant to you. Let's flood her with reminders that her work matters.

Her new book, Unexpected, just released and it's the power punch you've been waiting to read. This conversation is fun and challenging and convicting and grace-filled.

I won't say we saved the best for last because this whole series has been extraordinary because each set of guests has been extraordinary. But Sonnie and Jason, our enneagram 9 friends, have finished this EnneaSummer2019 so well. I've long loved nines, but this invitation into their minds and hearts brought (many) tears to my eyes. 

Oh enneagram 9 friends, thank y'all for how selflessly you live and love. You think of the rest of us so much. Thank you thank you thank you. May God remind you how much your presence matters in our lives- not for what you do, but for who you are.

Epic may be the right word for this particular episode- in length as well as in content. :) Y'all know I love a Hallmark Christmas movie and talking about the 2018 offerings was bound to happen.

This show comes to you in four parts.

Part 1. My gals Jami and Jenn are back to tell you their thoughts on the new movies for 2018.

Part 2. Candace Cameron Bure joins us to talk about her new movie A Shoe Addict's Christmas, getting out of the Christian bubble, and the enneagram (and I PROMISE she brought it up not me!). 

Part 3. My buddy Drew tells us his thoughts on the ONE Hallmark Christmas movie he's watched from start to finish, Let It Snow.

Part 4. Jami and Jenn are back to complete a Hallmark Christmas mad-lib. :) 

It's a doozie, but that's what Christmas parties so fun- sometimes you get into the party and you planned to leave after an hour but you're having such a good time you're still there an hour and a half later! hahahaha! I love this episode. Hope you will too.

Pastor Alex Seeley joins us to talk all about her new book The Opposite Life and the best parts (and the hardest parts) of the holiday season. What a gift to think through how to celebrate and grieve during these weeks- I'm so thankful for Pastor Alex talking us through this.

Stick around for Christmas stories from 2019 guests Drew Hill, the Roloffs, and David Crowder!

I've been so hoping we could get Jeff Henderson on the podcast and YES HERE HE IS. One of my favorite pastors (you'll hear why  in the show- I also cry SORRY BUT YOU KNOW ME), Jeff and his wife and daughter join us to discuss pastoring and running a business, raising kids to love the church, what it looks like to be FOR your community, and disappointing people (ouch). This guy is just one of the best- make sure you grab a copy of Know What You're FOR... one of my favorite books this year.

Today's episode includes super great Christmas stories from our 2019 guests Sarah Mae, Jeremy Cowart, and Emily Chapman Richards!
